Like Obama Said, You Are Only Successful Because of the Government, Right?

"If you were successful, somebody along the line gave you some help. There was a great teacher somewhere in your life. Somebody helped to create this unbelievable American system that we have that allowed you to thrive. Somebody invested in roads and bridges. If you’ve got a business. you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen. The Internet didn’t get invented on its own. Government research created the Internet so that all the companies could make money off the Internet. The point is, is that when we succeed, we succeed because of our individual initiative, but also because we do things together." 

“If you’ve got a business, you didn’t build that, somebody else made that happen.” ~ Obama

Here is the difference between those who succeed and those who do not in America.  It has nothing to do with the government.  Hypothetically, there are two people.  Both people are taking advantage of the same roads, bridges, cops, firefighters and other things that the government has put into place "to create a successful environment".  However, one succeeds and one does not.  So, why is it that those who become successful are being demonized?  URGH!
